All these recipes are easy to follow, quick, and come up flawless. It's as easy as making a box-mix-cake with far superior results. Definitely read the intro as it has great overall cake baking tips (O the shiny aluminum pans!). And there's cupcakes, too. I often make the flourless chocolate sweethearts with gooey centers. You bet your sweet ass I said gooey centers.

Picked this baby up at a yard sale for $1!
I've only read through it, haven't made anything from it yet, but I definitely plan to! And the intro and baker's tips that she puts with nearly every recipe are super interesting. I'm very excited to try some new techniques and recipes!

This book has some good ideas for getting cakes baked to perfection in less time. Three points I will remember... Use oven heat of 400 F. Use a shiny aluminum pan. Place unbroken eggs in a bowl of hot tap water for 5 minutes to warm.
